In an interview for Complex’s 360 With Speedy Mormon, Obama softly approved of Drake and the potential role casting, ‘If the time comes and he’s ready,’ as Drake said nearly a decade ago, ‘I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him.’
Obama continued to say, ‘Drake has, more importantly, my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it,’ while calling him a ‘talented, talented brother.’
